I have a chest cold, and I feel like crap. My dd is almost three, and she has been driving me up the wall for the past couple of days. When I'm not sick, I can handle her a lot better, but when I'm sick, I get cranky and irritable, and have no patience for her. Today her dad came by and took her out for a few hours so I could rest. But as soon as she came home, my crankiness started up again! Smearing ice cream on the table, sneaking sips of my diet soda...UGH!!! I couldn't wait until it was her bedtime!!
Now I feel guilty because I've been such an ass towards her. How do I apologize to a toddler and get to understand that Mommy doesn't mean to be cranky, that's she's just sick and not feeling well??
